Hartman Video Lecture Series (VLS)

Israel’s Milestones and Their Meanings: The Legacy of the Past and the Challenge of the Future

Sundays from 10 am – noon
Oct 15, Nov 12, Dec 10,  Jan 7 (to be rescheduled),  Feb 11 and Mar 11

Memory is a central element in defining modern Jewish identity. As we look to Israel’s future, we need to engage anew with our past and explore its meanings and consequences. Through the consideration of major historic moments, this iEngage Project series grapples with the different ideas and values that shape the meaning of modern Israel, Zionism, and Jewish identity today.

This innovative course explores the pivotal events of 1947 and 1967 – following the 1917 Balfour Declaration – as key moments when Zionism unleashed new thinking about the meaning of Jewishness for generations to come. The course engages Jews in an open and pluralistic discussion about issues of Jewish identity, peoplehood, ethics, and theology, as they relate to nationhood, land, sovereignty, Jerusalem, occupation, and moral red lines.

Each session includes a 20-35 minute video lecture and a 20-30 minute roundtable video discussion with senior Hartman faculty, as well as primary sources and background readings.

This is not a continuation of last year. New learners are most welcome!
